Strikeforce Live Blog: Shinya Aoki vs. Lyle Beerbohm Updates

SAN DIEGO --This is the Strikeforce live blog for Shinya Aoki vs. Lyle Beerbohm, a lightweight bout on tonight's Strikeforce on Showtime event at the Valley View Casino Center.

Aoki (26-5) is back in Strikeforce after losing a title bout last April to Gilbert Melendez. Beerbohm (16-1) is coming off the first loss of his career, a decision against Pat Healy in February.

The live blog is below.




Round 1: A kick to the body from Aoki starts us off, then a knee as Beerbohm rushes in to clinch. Aoki defends well and then reverses, taking Beerbohm down in the opening moments and then moving to his back almost immediately. Aoki sinks in the rear naked choke and Beerbohm is stuck. No choice but to tap. A much-needed victory in the cage for Aoki.
